on tap-pours a tan head, color is brown. Aroma is grain & sweet. Taste is malty and then the hops come through boldly. This was their best beer of the batch I had, very nicely done.

Ratman197 (9554) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 10, 2008
On tap @ Phantom Canyon poured a clear reddish amber with a small lasting light amber head. Aromas of carmel, citrus and light pine. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, earthiness and light citrus with a smooth lightly bitter finish.

On tap @ PC. Dark red orange appearance with a cream colored head. Caramel malty aroma with medium piney hops. Fairly piney, bitter hoppy flavor over a mild to medium caramel malty body.

Braudog (5600) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Dark red. Sticky foam on the glass. Fruity grapefruit aroma and likewise in the flavor. Light and drinkable. One of only two passable beers at Phantom Canyon.

BrewDad (4844) - Olympia, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2006
[Colorado Road Trip – 2006] This was a deeper orange color brew. Has a hard time with the over malty flavor vs the hops being a tad subtle. I was not a huge fan of this brew.

Dark amber in colour with no head at all. Maltiness in the aroma with almost nothing else. A great malty flavour with a bit of sweetness and a touch of hops thrown in. Finishes with a malt bitterness. Overall, a better than average that was one of my favourites from the afternoon at the brewpub, which says quite a bit, because I usually don't like the style. I had this on tap at the brewpub in Colorado Springs, CO on 10-August-2003.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 13, 2005
On tap at the brewpub. Rich amber color with a yellowish ivory head. Classical cascade hop aroma making this look, smell, and taste like a Colorado brewpub ale. Good, but not great.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 23, 2005
Tap at brewery. Pours a deep amber with a light, hoppy aroma. Hoppy flavor with a sweet, sugary finish. Coating palate. Good stuff!

Their "red ale," with crystal malts and cascades. One of their better beers, IMHO. Nice texture; creamy with a thickish presence. Not too "hoppy" by any means, but it has a decent citric quality. Bitterness builds with time somewhat. Chewy malts are a nice complement. Decent beer, indeed.
